Impressive ‘trapped-in-a-deadly-game’ action
Arisu Ryohei is unemployed and spends most of his time playing video games. One day he meets up with two friends in the middle of Tokyo. After some mild hijinks they hide in a cubicle in a public lavatory… suddenly the lights go out and they can no longer hear the general hubbub of the busy city. They emerge to find the city empty. Not long afterwards signs lead them to a building, where they are joined by two girls. Here they are forced to play a deadly game, after which they are awarded a playing card. It emerges that they will be forced to take place in such games on a regular basis. Later we are introduced to Usagi, a skilled climber, who later joins up with Usagi. They gradually learn more about the games and what the cards signify while trying to discover if there is a way back to their previous lives.
I really enjoyed this series; little time is wasted with set-up; the viewers are thrown into the action along with our protagonists. We know as little about the world they are in as they do and only learn more as they do. Early games make it clear just how dangerous this world is; just because a character is introduced early does not guarantee their survival. The scenes within the games are very tense, and frequently quite gory; there is also a fair amount of fan-service as characters wear beachwear in later episodes for reasons explained in the series. The way the dynamic between the characters changes is interesting; especially after our surviving protagonists find a location with many more players. The cast, both main and secondary does a solid job making the fantastical situation believable. The effects are mostly good but a couple of times the CGI is a bit obvious. As the final episode ends many questions are answered but more are raised; these people’s problems clearly aren’t over… hopefully there will be at least one more season.
These comments are based on watching the series in Japanese with English subtitles.
I have to admit that the show starts interesting, some teenagers move to an alternate universe where you have to play games in order to survive. It builds up to more complex games and even some of the initial main persons die in the games.
But the moment the series move to the beach it becomes ridiculous and completely unbelievable. We have a huge group of good-looking teenage kids walking around in bikini/swim suits (so you can’t hide guns…right), partying most of the times. What happend to all the older people they met before they went to the beach? Older people aren’t able to find the beach? The dialogues become really poor and flashbacks silly. Funny it to see that descent acting also drops with it and becomes really poor and some of the (bad) characters become silly stereotypes.
To top it in the end-game while all others are simply shot when they object, Arisu just gets beaten up but keeps getting back with more silly arguments and waits with his revelation of the “murderer” till the last moment while wasting time on a silly discussion.
So the shows starts fascinating, but looses it more and more towards the end…but I guess it will appeal to teenagers…
